In 2015 Khulisa partnered with the Global Give-back Circle to introduce a gap year for 120 matriculants in the communities of Oseswene, Madadene and Charlestown in the New Castle district. During this period they were provided with extensive training based on needs identified by girls in 5 schools during their matric year.
